Each box comes with a booklet detailing the items included and why the Allure Beauty Editors selected them.
Now, on to the items!
Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum – FULL SIZE! Value $85
(All subscribers will receive this item.)
I still can’t believe we got full-sized Sunday Riley in this box! This serum is designed to “fight the look of dullness, dark spots, and discolorations, while instantly increasing brightness, radiance, and luminosity.” The cream formula has a light citrus scent (which I love), and it instantly helped give my skin a boost of hydration.
I’ve been using this serum day and night since I received it in the Limited Edition GlossyBox, and I’m pretty sure I’m seeing results with discoloration – my skin appears to be overall more even-toned!
THE ONE by Frederic Fekkai One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray – 15 ml Value $2.17
(Subscribers will either receive this item or THE ONE by Frederic Fekkai One More Day Dry Shampoo.)
This hair product is designed to add texture and volume to your hair, and it has the added bonus of smelling heavenly! It gave my hair volume and texture just as promised – I think this is the perfect item to keep in your purse when your hair needs a little volume boost!
Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in Rosewood – 1 ml Value $8
(All subscribers will receive this item.)
This is a highly-pigmented, long-lasting liquid lipstick with a matte finish.
The color is a neutral mauve – very subtly pink. I think I finally found my “nude” lip color!

Rodial Smokey Eye Pen in Brown – FULL SIZE! Value $21
(Subscribers will either receive this item or Rodial Smokey Eye Pen in Black, Beauty For Real I-Line 24/7 Eyeliner in Whiskey, Grande Bat Your Lashes Mascara, or PopBeauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple.)
This kohl eyeliner glides on with high-pigment and a creamy finish. You can easily smudge it, too, for a smokey eye look. (But that means it isn’t budge-proof!)
Here it is swatched beneath the liquid lip:
ThisWorks In Transit Camera Close-up – 15 ml Value $20
(Subscribers will either receive this item or Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Milani Make It Dewy Setting Spray, Red Flower Icelandic Moonflower Moisturizing Body Lotion, Noxidoxi Pollution Blocker Face Mist, or LXMI Creme du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil.)
This product is designed to be a primer, mask, and moisturizer in one. I like the idea of combining the moisturizer and primer step in my morning routine and I LOVE the scent! This is perfect for dry air/cold weather months!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $136.17! This might be their best beauty box yet! Great brands, great sizes, great value! (And I think this box is worth it alone just for the full-size Sunday Riley!)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Probably not. Their website is showing the January box still, but saying if it’s sold out when you sign up your first box will be the February box.
